I don't mind multiple points of view on a film, but I wish reviewers would stick to reviewing a film, rather than arguing their political views endlessly. Yes, some of the films do deal with controversial political issues, and I think it's OK to talk about those issues, as long as you relate your opinions to the actual film in some way. It gets tedious to see postings that give you the idea that the poster didn't actually watch the film, but just wanted to spout off against the political opinions of another poster. These are supposed to be movie reviews, OK?

i just hope that in 5 years time the reviews section will be a place where people review movies, not political views, and the reviews are a glorious mix of diverse opinions that allow anyone to get an idea what the film is like. without a diverse range of opinions, mankind will fail.
